Luca Rossetti and United Business, the company that takes care of his sporting management, have signed an agreement with Pegasus Racing, with the cooperation of Skoda Turkey – Yuce Auto, to take part in the 2012 Turkish Rally Championship. The series consists of six events plus the Bosphorus Rally, also valid for the European Rally Championship.
Luca Rossetti said: “I am really happy to take part in this championship, for me it is the beginning of a new challenge. It will all be new for me, except for my friends of Pegasus Racing who will support this participation and with whom I already won the Bosphorus Rally in 2010 and Bulgaria Rally in 2011. As an Italian driver, I am proud to represent Skoda Turkey – Yuce Auto in an official programme”.
Cem Acar, Team Manager of Pegasus Racing, said: “We as Pegasus Racing, and as friends of Luca Rossetti, will extremely appreciate to see Luca in the Turkish Rally Championship. Pegasus Racing is strongly confident that Turkish rally spectators will also be stubbornly waiting for his presence on our battle fields. Our current supporter companies “TCHEALTH” and “Mobiltrust” are welcoming and leading this great driver’s presence in our championship”.
The first event for Luca Rossetti and Matteo Chiarcossi in the Turkish Rally Championship will be the Ege Rally, a tarmac event based in Izmir, with 138 km of special stages, on April 7th – 8th.
